Vielight Neuro is a new hope Light Therapy for Dementia, Alzheimers, Parkinsons TBI.
We are living in a time of great technical evolution and many studies have been done to find ways of improving the lives of people suffering from TBI, Dementia, Alzheimers, Parkinsons and many other brain issues.
These people suffering from severe symptoms have a shorter lifespan, worse still is, they could be alive for many years without any quality, without enjoying life.
Now there is some hope of restoring their quality of living with a simple 20 minutes of special PBM light therapy called Vielight Neuro
With Photobiomodulation [PBM], researchers use special headsets equipped with LEDs to shine pulsed red and near-infrared light on the outside of a patient’s head and up through their nose. As with the MIT results, preliminary data suggest that photons of light passing through the skull trigger a biochemical chain reaction in the brain that can potentially reverse the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s as well as treat a range of other brain maladies.
Professor Margaret Naeser Boston University School of Medicine
“When you deliver near-infrared photons to that brain cell, the nitric oxide is pushed outside the cell wall, and that promotes increased blood flow, which is what you want in an area that’s damaged,” said Naeser. “And that’s what we see on our MRI images, the increase in blood flow targeted to where we put the light photons. I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked.”
In addition to priming blood flow in the brain, light treatments seem to boost the brain’s autoimmune response to amyloid beta, the proteins that form the crippling plaque deposits found in Alzheimer’s. In a healthy brain, immune cells called microglia are tasked with clearing out excess amyloid beta. In an Alzheimer’s brain, microglia undergo a dangerous transformation. They not only stop attacking amyloid beta, but secrete a toxin that damages healthy brain cells.
Professor Michael Hamblin Harvard Medical school
“These are people with dementia symptoms, who haven’t been able to speak in connected sentences for weeks or months who suddenly start having a conversation, speaking in full sentences, understanding and replying,” Hamblin told Seeker. “People who had to be fed by caregivers can suddenly pick up a knife and fork and start eating their own meals. Remarkable changes.“
